Keeping Safe

We at The Harbour School understand that it can be quite difficult growing up and school life can bring its own challenges.  We always aim to make you feel safe and welcome in your learning environment and believe that having good relationships with the staff working with you is the first step to success.
You might be worried about...
School Work
Drugs and/or Alcohol
Eating and/or Body Image
Home Life
Unwanted Sexual Advances, from adults or peers
Risk Taking Behaviours e.g. theft, tomb stoning, legal highs, road safety
Involvement with the Police
What to do if you are feeling worried...
The best thing you can do is talk to a member of staff, with whom you feel comfortable.  Remember that staff can't keep secrets and may need to pass on information, but we always have your best interest at heart.
However, if you are not ready to talk then you can look at the links below for support:
Telephone: 0800 11 11
Understanding and Learning...
As part of your learning whilst at The Harbour School you will have the opportunity to explore a range of issues through SEAL and PSHE.  Learning opportunities will be available through your members of staff and people who work alongside the School who have even more skills to support you.
Serious Incidents...
Unfortunately serious incidents do occur which result in children and young people being harmed.  If you are ever involved in an incident or feel pressured, we will take it very seriously and may need to involve your Parent/Carer, Police and/or Social Care to ensure your safety and wellbeing.
We care.
